About MG

MG Marketing was established in 1923 by a small band of resolute growers to leverage greater value for their produce.  It was from these humble beginnings that the foundations were laid for a successful co-operative that values the benefits of shared knowledge and collective capability.  Today, MG represents over 400 grower shareholders.

MG takes great pride in the level of satisfaction our growers gain from the way we deliver procurement, marketing, forecasting, sales and distribution services. We are more than a link in the chain, we’re the marketing arm of the growers we work with. Our long history of success is due to the strength of our growers and their vision to realise the significance of working together.

Leading Supplier

 

We work closely with retail chains and independent outlets to provide top quality produce, both home-grown and from abroad. Our import programme remains an integral part of our sales mix and service proposition. In our procurement division, we have skilled and dedicated resource in place, both here in New Zealand and strategically located in California, to maintain our leading market position. Importing fruit and vegetables from production areas that often stretch the shelf life limits remains the key challenge for this business - a challenge which requires constant focus and adaptation in order to achieve the right results for MG and our customers.

We are very
fortunate

To work with global industry leaders, such as Dole and Sunkist, along with many large scale and family growing operations that support MG in this quest.
